number two eric cantor the majority leader put out a statement putting the onus on president obama and for the reason why there has not been a deal so far. basically saying they can't move forward in the house without some sort of action in the senate the next few days. what they left out of that, unfortunately, is the reason why they are waiting on the senate to do something. the senate coming into session tomorrow, by the way. is that speaker boehner couldn't get enough votes to move forward on a plan to avert the cliff last week. that's why we are where we are right now. the president will be boarding air force one in a few hours. flying overnight back to washington. is he likely to bring together congressional leaders in the next couple days when he he gets back to washington. time is running out, harris. >> harris: no breaking news in any of that. but we did see some today. treasury secretary tim geithner saying we could hit the debt ceiling the day after we follow off the fiscal cliff if no deal is reached. >> that's right. december 31st. a lot going on there. a lot of these

with the speaker, but they're not willing to run against him. you have big names like eric cantor and kevin mccarthy, number two and three, they're not even making noises about challenging boehner. so i think boehner come next month he's pretty safe even though right now he's having a tough time controlling his caucus. >> not only that, boehner was smart in bringing cantor and mccarthy and paul ryan into the fold when he introduced plan "b." did he that strategically so it looked like a united front. he still got undercut. he will probably be re-elected speaker but he is a much more ineffectual speaker after what happened. >> sam, give me a snap prediction. what do you think the president will say in the briefing room today? >> he's going to wish everyone a happy new year and then say -- i don't know. i have no idea. things are changing by a minute-to-minute basis. i have a guess he will probably say this ball is now in the senate's court. he's going to encourage them to get something done and put the weight of the presidency behind it. >> okay. thanks sam stein and robert costa, appreciate th

that's a bad idea. >> reporter: even eric cantor, the second-highest ranking republican in the house, was opposed to the deal struck by his colleagues in the senate. >> i do not support the bill. >> reporter: but others said, like it or not, the bill was the only way to prevent a big tax increase for virtually every american worker. >> republicans and the american people are getting something really important, permanent tax relief. >> reporter: the bill will prevent an income tax relief on workers earning under $400,000 a year. it also will extend unemploym t unemployments for people looking for work. but the bill leaves a lot left to do. in two months, the government will hit the limit of how much money it can borrow, unless congress raises the so-called debt ceiling. an automatic, across-the-board spending cuts to the pentagon and other agencies, are only to be delayed for two months, setting up yet another fiscal cliff on march 1st. congress has adjourned. the president is off to hawaii to meet up with his family. and hopefully, he thinks for a few days' vacation. >> you mentione

. the house majority leader eric cantor is now telling members to be prepared to work through january 2nd. both sides still far apart, however, on taxes and spending cuts. senate majority leader harry reid says prospects for a deal by monday are still unlikely. there was a lot of movement, motion for not a lot of action. >> where were you yesterday? >> i was here. we were together. >> were we ever with our -- no. but there were duelling senate leaders just -- first mcconnell came on. and he said -- did you see either one of those? >> i did. >> did you see harry reid? >> there's no chance of -- >> but if you think -- i want to rise above. there was so little of anything close to that yesterday other than just the -- i mean, people at home must be like, it's the endless blaming and finger pointing and, you know, when one side says it's all the other side's fault and all the other side comes on and says people at home aren't going, wow, i believe you, harry. or i believe i, mitch. they're saying you're both losers, right? >> right. >> my real concern is this is what the current version of am

him? who would run against him? eric cantor? could he muster a majority within the caucus right now? i kind of doubt it. we'll see. >> i was supposed to see this game sunday, john. >> which one? >> what do you mean which one? what's the most important game coming up this sunday? >> skins and cowboys. >> exactly. i was supposed to see it. luckily we're allowed to switch around. who wants to see jacksonville-10 see. because it's such a big game i have plans for the 1:00 game and now at 8:30, primetime football for nbc. >> so you're attending the game? >> i was going to. i don't think i can. i'd have to take off the next day and everything else. th they switched it on me. >> without your beauty sleep you can't do it. >> i can't get back here. >> you can do it from d.c. >> we have studios in washington. >> would you sit with me? >> yeah. >> really? all right. >> now we have plan. >> then you would be here. >> you could be here all alone. >> i could be here and you would be in d.c. >> it could work. >> joe, where's your money on that game? will be in redskins stadium. you think i would go t

. that was something that was worked up by him and eric cantor and others. so the real test here and i think challenge the president and john boehner sitting down again over the next three or four days. i think we have a few more days. we go over the cliff on the first but the new congress isn't sworn in until january 3rd. if they can work out, maybe just a small deal now. maybe down payments on cuts. maybe it is protecting, certainly protecting tax cuts for the middle class and small businesses and doing, you know, a few things to medicare, and then that gets us into next year where we can do bigger stuff like corporate tax reform and larger reforms to the tax code. jon: amos, what do you think about that proposal? >> that proposal, the whole situation is telling. we didn't have to be here. we all saw this coming for months. we knew it was coming. doug is right, house republicans did act. they acted to stop the defense cuts and stop the tax hikes. what happened since then, senate democrats have done nothing with it. i think president obama, senator reid, they have to bear some responsibility they hav
